Area Vs Elevation in WEAP Tadesse Alemayehu tadalm firstname.lastname@example.org Dear Sir/Madam,
I am working my MSc thesis to assess the water level fluctuation of Lake Tana, source of Blue Nile, due to water resource development projects. I know that WEAP can work volume Vs elevation at the end of each month. But I am more interested in Area Vs elevation, so would you help me how to tackle this issue using WEAP?

Re: Area Vs Elevation in WEAP Tendai Sawunyama tendai1 email@example.comHi Tadesse
If you are interested in Area vs Elevation then you will have to covert the volumes to areas using the relationship: Area=aCapacity exponent b, where a and b are constants that are derived from area vs capacity (volume) of the dam. I would assume the Lake have area vs capacity relationships already existing so that it will be easy for you to establish the constants a and b
